@EPN: Calling for action to Free Rodolfo Cázares kidnapped in Mexico #FreeRodolfo

My husband Rodolfo Cazares Solis, a Franco-Mexican conductor, was kidnapped on July 9, 2011 by a drug trafficking cartel in Mexico. The investigation into his kidnapping remains at a standstill, as Mexican authorities bury their head in the sand.

However, I have hope… The newly-elected President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, took office on December 1, 2012. He has already taken a position against any organized crime and has to brush up his international image… For this reason, I took the decision to launch a petition, asking for a hearing with the President and the reactivation of the investigation of my kidnapped husband.

Please sign this petition calling for release of Rodolfo. We need to send the message to all people of Mexico and the world that organized crime cannot go unpunished while innocent people suffer.

Thank you.

Ludivine Barbier Cázares and loved ones of Rodolfo
